The Ceylon Electricity Board submitted its revised tariff proposals for the revision of electricity tariffs to its consumers for 2013, through the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUC). The PUC as required submitted the proposals for consumers’ comments.
The revised rates of CEB are set to improve the world record already held by Sri Lanka for the highest electricity charge for any category of consumers anywhere in the world, this time for three higher categories in the domestic group. Based on CEB’s estimates, the cost of electricity delivered to each consumer is Rs. 24.47 per unit. However, the CEB’s supply and distribution costs to smaller consumers are much higher.
